Preschool Cloud Experiment & Weather Blog Hop!
First we filled a clear glass with water and topped it with a shaving cream cloud.
The kids really liked this activity and wanted to do it over and over again. We paired it with The Cloud Book, which I paraphrased since it was a little long for them. It describes all kinds of clouds and uses the proper names for them. It also tells about what people have believed about clouds throughout history. It's factual without being boring.
We also tried another cloud experiment. We put warm water in the bottom of a jar with ice cubes on the top. It was supposed to form a "cloud" and the condensation would "rain", but this required more patience and wasn't a big hit.
